The Great GenXcape Writer's Retreat

October 25-27, 2024

It’s like Meatballs (camp!) meets The Breakfast Club (self-exploration & realization) meets Clueless (deluXe living) meets Before Sunrise (inspiration for writing a best-selling book).

We’re thrilled to welcome writers of all ilks, from those who scribble for a living to those who have always dreamed of unlocking their inner V.C. Andrews, to enjoy an entire weekend devoted to creative reconnection and expression.

J. and Trudi specially designed the GenXcape weekend to provide you with loads of latchkeys that unlock your creativity, passion, and, perhaps, your magnum opus.

Best of all, your excellence will be properly recognized for a change! During the weekend, you’ll complete one or more creative works, which J. and Trudi will collect, edit, and publish in a collection from the first GenXcape. You get a free copy, and the proceeds from any additional sales will benefit a charity of the group’s choice.

Price: $1984

The weekend includes:

  • Creative instruction
  • Private work-in-progress consultation with J. or Trudi
  • Exercises and assignments
  • Group jam sessions & workshopping
  • All meals, healthy, delicious, and with vegan options (including a Cowgirl Barbecue!)
  • Smores and stargazing by the fire pits
  • Daily group meditation (optional)
  • Heavy petting (and photo ops) with Clyde the TV and movie star buffalo and his animal posse that live next door (cows, goats, horses, longhorn steer)
  • No phones — off-the-grid, just like when you were a kid (you can bring it and use it for an emergency, but nobody’s Tokking)
  • Transportation to and from Albuquerque airport
  • Transportation to and from Mystic Hotel (*see below)

Does not include airfare or lodging.

Cancellation Policy: We get it; life happens. But we’re not gonna let you bail. Once you commit, it’s ON. Worse case, you can sell your spot to someone else, but don’t pull a Mike Damoan — scalpers are your last resort.
